Reasoned justification :

8.15 Policy GRE1 provides for the protection of a network of accessible public open space throughout the Borough. While the nature of that protection is set out within Policy GR1, Proposal GR2 identifies the individual sites to which this protection will be applied. The boundaries of each site are shown on the Proposals Map.

8.16 The protection given to Proposal GR2 sites is based upon the role the site plays within the network of accessible public open space, its contribution to the visual amenity and character of the urban area, and its contribution towards meeting the standards for the provision of space outlined below Policy GRE1. The Proposal GR2 list, therefore, comprises those sites which are considered essential to protect in order to ensure that the network and supply of accessible public open space is not compromised.

8.17 While accessible public open spaces falling outside the urban area also form an essential part of the network, they are not included within the Proposal GR2 list because of the additional protection they derive from national Green Belt controls.
